SCHOOL OF NURSINC
By Sister Angela Maria,
and Elisabeth Reichert Smith, Ph.D*
At the opening of the Georgetown University Training
School for Nurses in 1903, neither Georgetown Univer-
sity, its hospital, nor the nursing profession could have
envisaged the changes which were to occur in nursing
during the subsequent half-century.
The first eight students, graduated in 1906, like those
who followed during the next three decades or so, found
their education a form of apprenticeship involving long
hours of practice on hospital wards with limited amounts
of classroom instruction. The vital role of student nurses
of this era in providing nursing service to the hospital’s
patients is evidenced by the small number of graduate
staff nurses employed by the hospital. For example, as
recently as March 'of 1935 only eight staff nurses were
employed throughout the hospital.
The dual position of the Franciscan Sister who served
both as hospital superintendent and principal of the
nursing school facilitated this service use of students. A
single School of Nursing Committee, meeting for a half-
hour period either monthly or bimonthly, sufficed to
establish educational policies and to consider unusual
Despite the apprenticeship approach to nursing edu-
cation generally prevailing at that time, it is obvious that
the school authorities were aware of the trend toward
another type of education for nurses. This is indicated
by the early dates at which affiliations in pediatric (1926)
and psychiatric (1935) nursing and elective supervised
field experience in public health nursing (1935) were
introduced into the Georgetown curriculum.
Cessation of the public healtlT nursing field experience
in 1936 had little effect on the students’ program since
it involved only one student during each period. The
transfer, in 1937, of the affiliation in psychiatric nursing
from St. Elizabeth Hospital to Mt. Hope Retreat (later
known as The Seton Institute) followed critical examina-
tion of the educational content in this area of nursing.
Growing concern for the students’ welfare was also ap-
parent in the School of Nursing Committee meetings at
which such topics as library, smoking and recreational
facilities, regular class schedules, and late permissions
The Curriculum Guide for Schools of Nursings pub-
lished by the National League of Nursing Education in
1937, evoked an immediate response at Georgetown. The
number of class hours in the basic sciences .was increased;
the need for a course in sociology was studied; and an
effort was made to bring course content into conformity
with League recommendations.
The increased attention focused on the curriculum, to-
gether with recognUon of the need for student guidance,
a student government organization, and more carefully
formulated policies for admission, led to the establish-
ment of additional committees within the Executive Com-
mittee with written regulations covering its membership,
duties, and responsibilities, and the name of , the school
was changed from the Georgetown Hospital Training
School for Nurses to the Georgetown University School
Official consideration by the University of a, baccalau-
reate-level program reflected increased acceptance of
nursing education as a university responsibility. This
resulted, in 1944, in the establishment of a five-year
degree program which possessed the advantage of pro-
viding academic content without disrupting the three-
year diploma program of nursing studies. Inasmuch as
the three-year program also served as the three clinical
years of the baccalaureate program; it was possible to
carry both degree and diploma programs without sub-
stantial increases or changes in the* responsibilities of

the clinical faculty, especially since little attention was
paid to the articulation of the academic and clinical areas
of the degree program.
Gradual changes were also occuring at this time which
eventually led to recognition of the Nursing School’s
responsibility for the education of the students as dis-
tinct from the service needs of the hospital and its
patients. The separation of the position of hospital super-
intendent from that of principal of the School of Nursing
and the steady increase in the number of graduate staff
nurses employed by the hospital both reflected and facili-
tated the differentiation of the aims, responsibilities, and
methods of these two agencies.
With the entrance of the United States into Worid
War II, the Georgetown University School of Nursing
accepted the need for many adjustments in its policies
and practices. Demand for an accelerated program; par-
ticipation in the United States Cadet Nurse Corps; in-
creased applications for admission with the resulting
need for additional housing facilities; and the demands
of nursing service in the hospital, placed heavy respon-
sibilities upon the teaching and administrative officers
of the University, the School of Nursing, and the Hospital.
The suggestion of the National League of Nursing
Education that nursing programs be accelerated was
approved by the District of Columbia Board of Nurse
Examiners, and was implemented at Georgetown begin-
ning with the Fall semester, 1943. A shortage of housing
space led to application for government funds to build
St. Mary’s Hall, which was completed in May of 1943.
Additional housing space was also procured through
purchase of a residence on 44th Street.
More complete integration of the School of Nursing
into the University took place in 1947 with the appoint-
ment of the School’s first Dean, a Sister of Charity of
Nazareth, Ky. During the same year, the new George-
town University Hospital was erected, providing up-to-
date facilities for clinical experience as well as expanded
housing facilities for student nurses through use of the
old hospital building.
This housing arrangement continued until 1956 when
a new residence was built for the School of Nursing
adjacent to the Medical Center, bringing the school
within the geographical confines of the Medical Center
of the University and making possible accommodations
for 178 resident students.
The first Regent of the School of Nursing was ap-
pointed in 1948, and efforts to extend the rank and
tenure system of the University to the Nursing School
faculty were completed in 1951. In order to prepare for
accreditation by the National League of Nursing Educa-
tion and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Nurs-
ing, it was deemed essential to develop a plan to enable
graduate nurses employed in the hospital to gain the
necessary educational background for supervisory posi--
tions with faculty status. In 1950 a supplemental pro--
gram for graduate nurses leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Science in Nursing was introduced.
The lack of integration between general education and
nursing subjects in the five-year baccalaureate program
was recognized as a significant weakness even as the pro-
gram was initiated in 1944. Not only was there need for
correlation of all course content but also for improve-
ment in the quality of the nursing major. Following in-
tensive study of this problem, the Curriculum Committee
recommended that a four-year integrated degree program
supplant the five-year degree program. It was recognized
at this time that this same solution was being adopted
by many other collegiate institutions.
Consideration was given to the need to maintain the
GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY ALUMNI MAGAZINE
existing diploma program since it was the only such pro-
gram under Catholic auspices in the Washington area.
However, limitations on the resources of the University
and hospital made it difficult to continue two basic pro-
grams. Also, the supplemental program for graduate
nurses placed additional demands upon the school. It
was believed that this latter program should be given
higher priority on the basis of then current educational
needs in nursing.
Therefore, it was decided to terminate both the di-
ploma and five-year degree programs upon graduation of
the classes admitted in 1950, to continue the supplemental
program for graduate nurses, and to admit the first class
to the four-year basic professional nursing program in
In this same year the School of Nursing was estab-
lished as an independent school within the Georgetown
University. Within this framework the University ac-
cepted responsibility for the school’s programs.
Throughout the planning and implementation stages
of the new program, particular attention was focused on
those educational requirements recommended by ac-
crediting agencies as well as on the unique educational
objectives of the school. Temporary accreditation by the
National League for Nursing was granted shortly after
the establishment of the four-year basic professional
Determination to prepare simultaneously for full ac-
creditation in public health nursing as well as of the basic
professional program made mandatory the establishment
of clinical experience in public health nursing as an in-
tegral part of the program. Public health nursing agen-
cies, other than the Instructive Visiting Nurse Society
(later, the Visiting Nurse Association) which was already
providing an affiliation on an elective basis, were ex-
amined to determine their availability as clinical areas
in the event that Georgetown classes should become too
large to be accommodated by a single agency.
The appointment of a faculty member in public health
nursing also facilitated faculty efforts to further develop
social and psychological aspects of' disease conditions,
normal growth and development of the individual, and
community aspects' of prevention and control of illness
throughout the curriculum.
Since accreditation standards would affect the amount
and conditions of student assignment to evening and
night duty both during affiliations and clinical assign-
ment at Georgetown University Hospital, a policy defin-
ing both was established. The new policy led to the
withdrawal of affiliation in pediatric nursing- from Chil-
dren’s Hospital and its establishment as Gallinger Hospi-
tal ’(later, District of Columbia General .Hospital) .
A four-week experience in tuberculous nursing,
originally offered as an elective at Gallinger Hospital,
was made part of all students’ experience and developed
at the collegiate levd at Glenn Dale Hospital.
In 1955 full accreditation by the National League for
Nursing was, granted to Georgetown University for the
basic professional nursing program including public
health nursing. At the same time study of the supple-
mental program revealed that considerable revision was
necessary in order to meet accreditation standards. Since
the needs of the basic professional program demanded
full attention of the faculty, it was decided to suspend
admission to the supplemental program during the aca-
demic year, 1956-1957. Reevaluation of this program the
following year indicated that the situations leading to
its suspension had not changed and it was decided not
to reactivate the program at that time.
Weaknesses in the educational content in psychiatric-
mental health nursing led to a request for nurse con-
sultation services from, the National Institue of Mental
Health. Clinical experience in psychiatric nursing, as
well as in other areas in which concepts of psychiatric-
mental health nursing could be introduced and developed,
were studied. In the Fall of 1957 the United States Pub-
lic Health Service through the National Institute of
Mental Health awarded a grant to the School of Nursing
providing for appointment of a psychiatric nurse con-
sultant to assist the faculty in the evaluation of educa-
tional needs in psychiatric-mental health nursing and
the implementation of the faculty’s plan for meeting these
The Georgetown University School of Nursing faculty
and administration, by continuing efforts to relate its
philosophy, aim^, and objectives to the needs of the stu-
dents, the community, and the nursing profession, has
achieved the development of a sound basic professional
program in nursing. The high standards of Catholic,
collegiate, and professional education reflected in this
program have led to the admission of a student body of
approximately two hundred students carefully selected
from a large number of applicants. Refinement of re-
quirements for faculty appointment, cooperation of mem-
bers of the various departments of the University con-
cerned with nursing education, continuing attempts to
apply University rank, tenure, and salary structure to
the Nursing School faculty, and participation of the stu-
dents in University Standards for Dean’s List and Aca-
demic Honors, reflect the unified efforts of the University
and its School of Nursing toward continuing improve-
ment of this program of studies.
Recognition of University responsibility for all seg-
ments of the curriculum, both theoretical and clinical,
has led to exploration of new patterns of relationships
with agencies providing clinical areas for educational
purposes. Extensive utilization of the facilities of the
Georgetown University School of Nursing and of the
Washington area, both academic and clinical, curricular
and cocurricular, provides educational experiences neces-
sary for the preparation of graduates as knowledgeable
Catholics and adult women, competent to fulfill their
responsibilites to their families. Church, communities,

GASTON LECTURE SERIiS
On Civil Liberties
“I am terribly concerned as a trial lawyer over some
phenomena that' have found their way into our social
fabric in the past ten years; phenomena that seem to me
to be incredible intrusions into our traditional concepts
of human freedom and ’^individual liberty.” With these
words, Edward Bennett Williams, in a recent Gaston
lecture, began his exposition of some modern facets of
an old problem.
The first threat to civil liberties, as Mr. Williams
points out, is that of the “legislative lynch” which has
arisen in these days of televised Congressional hearings.
“Certainly Congress and its Committees,” he claims,
“have the right to make inquiry, have the right to make
investigations in the fields in which they have a bona fide
intent to legislate . . . but this is a far cry from calling
witnesses to demonstrate facts already within the knowl-
edge of the committee. It is a far cry from calling wit-
nesses for the purpose of exposing them, or degrading
them, or humiliating them, or publicly castigating them.”
The. current procedure is to interrogate witnesses in
executive session, asking them all the questions relevant
and germane to the subject matter and then to recall the
witnesses in open session. Mr. Williams continued, “They
are called before television and radio and the press and
the same questions are put to them, but on a more selec-
tive basis. Unfortunately, the record appears th^t the
questions which are propounded to them are those which
will excite headlines and attract public attention.” We
are reminded, however, that the purpose of the legisla-
tive committees is to “get information for the purposes
of legislation” and not to expose. “Exposition,” says Mr.
Williams, “may be a good objective, but an invalid, un-
constitutional, illicit means was. being employed to attain
“I say that philosophically all God believing people
accept the tenet that a good end does not justify an evil
means. And so, if the means being employed is illicit,
the fact that exposition itself may be a good objective
does not warrant an unconstitutional procedure.”
The futility of such attempts to expose without acquir-
ing any new information is shown by those witnesses who
invoked the fifth amendment so often. The giiilt or in-
nocence of such men, said the speaker, is not material:
“It is no more right to lynch a guilty man than to lynch
an innocent man.”
Another violation of the principle that a good end does
not justify an evil means is wiretapping which was made
a criminal offense by Congress in 1934. “Yet,” said Mr. .
Williams, “ the greatest investigative agency in the history,
of the worldj^ the JF^^l Bureau oF^vestigation.^tai^
wires and it ta p^ w ires^alLthe . ^tim^ This Js shown bv t he
repofS^rtKi^last eight Attorneys General of the United
States^and,the admission of the Directory of Jhjgjed^^
Bureau of ^Iny estj g a tiom>hi mself^ r^ongress^yhen^
he testified seeking appropriations for.hisjag en^y.”
The justification for this wiretapping is “necessity.”
“But,” continues Mr. Williams, “necessity has been the
GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY ALUMNI MAGAZINE
plea for every infringement of human rights since the
beginning of democracy. ‘It is the argument of tyrants
and the creed of slaves,’ said William Pitt.
“Wiretapping is no less a crime when done by an
agent of the Government or the State than when done
by a private citizen. And I am displeased to tell you it is
done on a wide scale, and it’s done all the time.
“In New York there is a statute which purports to
authorize wire tapping. And it is standard practice, I
can document this at any time for any of you who are
interested that agencies of the Federal Government ,use
New York State wire taps constantly.”
Even in such states which have, statutes purporting to
authorize it, wiretapping is a menace because every time
someone calls such a state from another state, potentially
the security of his conversation is in danger. Nor, claimed
Mr. Williams, can such a state “ignore the law of the
“Now, 150 years ago, in this country we arrived at the
conclusion that our mores would not accept the opening
of other people’s mail. I say, "this constitutes an even
worse 'infractioh of civil liberties; because a ‘telephone
tap records both the message and the answer. And a
telephone tap on a suspect picks up the’ conversation of
innocent persons. Conversations between husband and
wife, doctor and patient, lawyer and client. Sometimes
conversations between a clergyman and his parishioner.
“And yet, wiretapping goes on year after year and the
challenge does not come forth from my profession.

“I was defending corporate bank rolls, and I found
that in the defense of a corporate bank roll the rules
permitted me to take the testimony of the person who

could learn the identity of all the witnesses of the suing

germane to the issues before the trial of the case, so that

“But when I began to defend people whose liberty, in
some instances, whose life, and in every instance, whose
reputation was at stake, I found that I could not learn
the names of the witnesses for the prosecution nor take
their testimony before trial, nor get documentary evi-
dence before trial.”
GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY ALUMNI MAGAZINE
The Supreme Court ruling in the Jenks case helped
to alleviate this problem by allowing a defendant the
right to see certain statements in the hands of the
FBI. Nevertheless, said Mr. Williams. . I find it
terribly hard to believe that the founding fathers of this
republic . . . when they wrote the hallowed bill of rights
. . . to believe that they intended to iniplement property
rights by procedural rules more advantageous than those
which implement human rights.
‘‘And yet, this Spring when the Supreme Court of the
United States took a forward step in the right direction
and held that where there was a basis for believing that
a witness in a criminal case had testified perjuriously, the
defendant should have the right to see the statement in ^
the hands of t he FBI th e hue and cry that went up was
so loud and so deadly that Congress was motivated in
the last three days of this Session hysterically to rush
a bill through to countervail the decision in the Jenks
“Now I say there are inequities in criminal procedure,
1957 A.D. I cite you the statistics of 1956. Last year
31,811 people were accused of crimes by the United States
Government across this Nation. How many were con-
victed? 27,657 — ^90 per cent. In the 11,000 cases in
which the Federal Bureau of Investigation worked the
percentage was 96.4 per centT^ the Government — no
litigant — can win 90 per cent of a big volume of litigation.
“The inequities cry out for a remedy and my profes-
sion must be alerted, excited, and made to move on it.
Some of you may be future members of it. It’s a situa-
tion which calls out for a change.
“Now, with respect to those defendants who did not
take the stand in their own defense, the statistics are
even more staggering. Because, of those, 99 per cent
were convicted. And I say that this marks the advent in
our system of jurisprudence of the concept of guilt by
“The organized assaults on the Fifth Amendment and
its use over the past ten years,” said Mr. Williams, “has
effectively nullified the presumption of innocence for a
silent defendant . . . and the Fifth Amendment is what
substantially differentiates our system of justice from the
European system, because ours is accusatorial and theirs
Closely related to the concept of “guilt by silence” is
that of “guilt by client,” Mr. Williams continued, “In
fourteen states, prospective candidates for jobs as prose-
cutors are asked: ‘Have you ever represented an ex-
convict, one accused of Communism, a hoodlum, a
racketeer?’ The Sixth Amendment said that every man
who is accused of crime has the right to counsel. Every
man. Not every man except an ex-convict, not every man
except one who is charged with being a hoodlum, but
every man.” Mr. Williams believes there must therefore
be an obligation on the members of the legal profession
to “render that representation — so long as it is sought
within the limitations of integrity.
GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY ALUMNI MAGAZINE
“But somehow this message’ has never quite penetrated,
either to the members of the law profession* or to the
laity, because too often our respected and reverend lead-
ers watch for an exit when the scorned and degraded,
when the publicly obnoxious come for aid. But the fact
of the matter is, everyone — no matter how socially or
politically obnoxious he may be at the time ... is en-
titled to counsel, so long as he seeks it within the limits
of honesty. And the fantastic thing is that it is in these
cases involving the scorned and the degraded and the
unpopular where the great constitutional issues are gen-
“The great advocates of the past were willing to risk
the obloquy of the uninformed in the defense of the
rights of the most degraded. Samuel and John Adams
stood beside the defendants at the bar of justice in the
Boston Massacre Case. When the advocates of 1958 re-
sume that glorious tradition, the legal profession will
resume the glory that it has known in the past.
“These are some of the phenomena that trouble me.
I’m afraid that we lawyers have become obsessed ^ith
property rights. I said before that I think that the de-
fense of liberty has lost its prestige and that the defense
of property is paying off better in dollars and esteem.
“. . . Somehow the idea is being nurtured and fostered
that it is professionally ‘declasse’ to stand at the bar of
justice beside one whose liberty is in jeopardy . . . We
have forgotten that the first frontiers of American civil
liberties were forged in the precincts of this country, in
the dingy magistrate rooms, in the felony courts of the
counties, in the Federal courtrooms across this Nation.
We have lost sight of this basic tenet.”
Mr. Williams concluded, “I believe that our freedom
in this country is the end-product of thousands and thou-
sands of minute episodes. No one event has marked its
victory; no one event its decline. Its vigor or its weak-
ness has been marked by a pattern of events so small
as to be invisible to the total mosaic of American free-
dom. We must remain sensitive to those episodes ,and
concerned about it.
“And if my profession is to man the watchtowers of
liberty in this country and hold the trust that is imposed
in it, it would do well to recall a prayer ... by a lawyer
from the Far East, Tagor:
‘Where the mind is without fear and the head is held
‘Where knowledge is free —
‘Where the world is. not divided into segments by
narrow domestic walls,
‘Where words come up from the depths of truth —
‘Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards
‘Where the clear stream of reason is not lost in the
dreary desert sand of dead habit —
‘Where the mind is led forward into ever widening
thought and action:
‘Into that heaven, my Father, let my profession awake’.”

You can find rich rewards
as an agent for the
Farmers Insurance Group
Only 29 years ago the Farmers Insurance
Group started, with very small capital and
Today we’re considered the largest auto
insurance company in the West. We have
expanded into 25 states — from California
to Illinois — and further growth depends
only upon getting the right kind of men—
like you Georgetown alumni — to join us.
Our assets are over $192 million dollars.
Actually many men who have joined us are
now independently wealthy.
We have a unique approach to the insur-
ance business which makes it easier to win
success quickly. Even if you know nothing
about the insurance business, we can teach
you our “secrets” quickly — you can test our
methods while you are still employed else-
where, earn while you learn, and join us full
time only after you have convinced your-
self that Farmers Insurance Group offers
the money making opportunity you want.
Write for information to the Home Office
Sales Dept., 4680 Wilshire Blvd., Los An-
geles 54, California.
Or look in your phone book — if there is
a Farmers Insurance Group office in your
area, call on our District Manager and ask
about money-making-opportunities in our
